Idaho StoryCorps: A Collection Of Your Stories

Tune in on Oct. 3 and 6 for a special hour-long show about storytelling featuring the people you've heard in this year's Idaho StoryCorps pieces and how oral histories have changed over the centuries.

The special airs Oct. 3 at 7:00 p.m. MDT and Oct. 6 at 2:00 p.m. MDT on KBSX 91.5. Share your stories with us on Twitter with the #idahostorycorps or on Facebook!

On June 10, 2013 an Airstream trailer parked on the sidewalk outside Boise’s City Hall. It was the mobile recording booth for the national oral history project known as StoryCorps. This mobile studio travels the country collecting people's stories.

The nonprofit organization, StoryCorps, has recorded and archived more than 45,000 personal stories since the oral history project launched in 2003. Excerpts from those recorded interviews are heard each week on NPR's Morning Edition.

We listened to dozens of the interviews recorded in Boise and aired 14 of them on our news station KBSX 91.5 fm.

You can find all 14 of those pieces below.
